CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1878. 

VENUS IS THE RULING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



Tiie Year in General .— Will be rather dry, tak- 
ing the whole year together; it will also be sultry 
Bed tolerably warm. 

Sprino.— If the solar year continues warm and 
pleasant till late, there will be a Lite Spring, gener- 
ally temperate, and is favorable to all kinds of grain. 
When the winter grain is forward and large, the 
sheep may be pastured on it without injury; they 
may also be kept on the meadows longer than other 
years. 

Summer.— [f the Spring rains do not continue too 
long, there will be a warm, sultry summer, as it gen- 
erally is; if. however, there is much rain in the Spring, 
there will bj a dry, hot summer, which, however, is 
not often the case. In this case there will be good 
Vintage; otherwise there is danger that muchhay and 
grain will spoil on the fields. 

Fall — This season is generally warm and pleas- 
ant, but will not last long; hence the necessity of 
attending early to the fall work. Winter-grain should 
he sowed earlv. the grape vines covered, and winter 



fruit secured, as generally by the end of November, 
Winter will set in. 

Winter. — In the commencement is tolerably 
dry, afterwards, especially from about the 12th of 
February, to the beginning of Spring, quite wet, very 
heavy showers, which often prove injurious to per- 
sons, buildings, and cattle. 

Cultivation of Summer Grain. — When the 
Spring is wet, and there are rains almost every day, 
the grain should be put out as early as possible, as 
there will be a dry, hot Summer, without rain for 
several weeks. 

Cultivation of Winter Grain.— Be the year as 
it will, the corn and wheat will seldom produce much 
besides straw, unless the grain is pastured down in 
the Spring. 

Autumn SEEDiNG.-Winter grain should be sowed 
in good time on account of the early winter which 
will follow. 

Fruit. — If it is very wet in the Spring, there will 
be very little of any kind of fruit. If it is about us- 
ually temperate, there will be plenty of apples, 
plums, nuts, cherries, pears and acorns.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1878. 



INTRODUCTORY. 



The sands of another year are nearly run and 
the time has again arrived for us to publish 
our annual Almanac. Our attempts to give 
to the brotherhood a good family Almanac, in 
former years, has been crowned with such 
good success that we feel encouraged upon 
entering the work for 1878. Whether each 
Almanac has been an improvement upon the 
year before, we will not stop to inquire, but 
this we do know, that such was our purpose, 
but as men do not always succeed in accom- 
plishing their purposes, such may have been 
our lot. However this may be, our purposes 
have not been abated and we now enter the 
work with a renewed determination to give to 
the church and world such an Almanac as will 
meet, as nearly as possible, their wants. 

"When wo think of the thousands of homes 
our Almanac will enter, it becomes, to us, a 
grave question, as to what shall occupy its 
columns. We can think of a great deal that 
we would like to have, but as we do not have 
it all at command we must go ahead and do 
the best we can with what we have, avoiding 
everything that can, in any way be injurious 
to the morals of the most sanctified Christian 
home. 

The ministerial list has been considerably 
enlarged by adding to it the names of such as 
have been elected and also some that had not 
been heretofore reported. We have also 
stricken from the list some of our standard 
bearers who have finished their course and 
passed over to the other side. 

The other part of it we filled with such 
matter as was sent us and we had at our com- 
mand. While it may not be as all will think 
it should be, we hope that our endeavor to do 
the best we could under the circumstances 
will be appreciated and that we shall have a 
patronage that will justify us in preparing and 
getting it out. 

Thanking all for past favors wo now send it 
forth hoping that it may prove a pleasant fire- 
side companion to every household in the 
brotherhood. 



The^JGreat Wall of China. — The great 
wall ot China was measured in many places by 
Mr. Unthavik, an American enginoer, lately 
engaged on a survey for a Chinese railway. 



His measurements give the height at 18 feet, 
and the width on top 15 feet. Every few hun- 
dred yards there is a tower 24 feet square, and 
from 20 to 45 feet high. The foundation is of 
solid granite. Mr. Unthank brought a brick 
from the wall, which is supposed to have been 
made 200 years before the time of Christ. In 
building this immense stone fence to keep out 
the Tartars, the builders never attempted to 
avoid mountains or chasms to save expense, 
tor 1,300 miles the wall goes over plain and moun- 
tain, and every foot of the foundation is of solid gran- 
ite, and the rest of the structure solid masonry. la 
some places the wall is built smooth up against the 
bank, or canyons, or precipices, where there is a sheer 
descent of 1,000 feet. Small streams are arched over, 
but in the larger streams the -wall runs to the water's 
edge and a t-^wer is built on each side. On the top of 
thewall are breastworks, or defences, facing in and out, 
so the defending force can pass from one tower to an- 
other without beine- exposed to the enemy from either 
side. To calculate the time of buil ding or the cost of 
this wall is beyond human skill. So far as ths mag- 
nitude of the work is concerned, it surpasses anything- 
in ancient or modern times of which there is any trace. 
The pyramids of Egypt are nothing compared to it 

A REMARKABLE PROPHECY- 



The following which is known as "Mother 
Shipton's Prophecy," was first published in 
1488, and.republished in 1641. It will be no- 
ticed that all the events predicted in it, except 
that mentioned in the last two lines — which 
is still in the future — have already come to> 
pass : 

Carnages without horses shall go, 
And accidents fill the world with woe, 
Around the world thoughts shall fly 
In the twinkling of an eye. 
Waters shall yet more wonders do * 
Now strange, y-st shall be true. 
The world upside down shall be, 
And gold be found at root of tree. 
Through hiils men shall ride, 
And no horse or ass bo at his side. 
Under water men shall walk ; 
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall talk. 
In the air men shall be seen, 
In white, in black, in green. 
Iron in the water shall float, 
As easy as a wooden boat, 
Gold shall be found, and found 
In a land that's nor now known. 
Fire and water shall wonders do, 
England shall at last admit a Jew. 
The world to an end shall come 
In eighteen hundred and eighty-or.e.

BEETHBEN'S ALMANAC. 



[187S, 



OUR LINEAGE IN CHURCH LITERATURE. 

Some people manifest a great deal of family 
pride and with much care, endeavor to run 
their lineage back to some notable ancestor. 
In free and fast America much of the ancesto 
rial glory has been lost in men of present 
worth, yet an honorable lineage should not be 
despised unless it has been demoralized by the 
persons upon whom its glory should descend. 

In giving the lineage of our church litera- 
ture we do not do it through a spirit of vain 
glory, but to show how, through a well order 
ed chain of God's providence, the whole thing 
has been connected together. 

In the year 1849 Eld. Henry Kurtz first con- 
c.eived the idea of publishing a monthly pa 
per in the interest of the Church of the Breth- 
ren, to be called the " Gospel Visitor" but as 
the move was not very favorably received, by 
the Church, the first No. was not issued until 
April 1st 1851. His first office, we are informed, 
was on the loft of his spring-house, near Po- 
land, Ohio. 

In 1856 Eld. James Quinter was associated 
with the paper as assistant editor, and in a 
few years afterwards became a partner. Dur- 
ing this time, Bro. H E. Holsinger served an 
apprenticeship in the Gospel Visitor office. 

In the spring of 1861 Bro. Holsinger con 
ceived the idea of publishing an independent 
church paper to be issued weekly. This move 
received considerable encouragement from the 
church, and on the 1st of Jan. 1865 the first 
number was sent out under the title of the 
Christian Famih) Companion, printed and pub 
lished at Tyrone, Pa. This paper, on account 
of it being published weekly, and its inde- 
pendent position, soon gained quite a fair rep- 
utation and subscription list. 

In the year 1870 the Pious Youth, a month- 
ly juvenile paper, intended for our youth, was 
started in this office, but after two years it 
was discontinued for want of a sufficient pat- 
ronage to secure the publisher from financial 
loss. During this time, Bro. J. B. Brumbaugh 
who afterwards became the junior publisher 
of the Pilgrim, served a short time in 
this office. 

January 1st 1870, the Pilgrim another in- 
dependent religious weekly was started at 
James Creek, Pa., published by H. B. & J. B. 
Brumbaugh. This paper also, soon received a 



be year 1873, 



wa» 



I beral patronage and 

moved to Huntingdon. 

In 1871 the firwt Brethren's Almanac was 
printed in the Companion \ ffi :e, by Bro. Rol- 
singer and has been con tin cred annually ever 
since. 

In tjVe fall of 1871 the Companion office was- 
moved to Meyfersda e. 

In the tear 1873 the first 'Pilgrim. Almanac"' 
was published in ihe Pilgrim office by Brum- 
baugh Bro H . This Almanac dffered from the 
Brethren's Almanac in that of being 1 publish- 
ed in the ofd Family Almanac style and of 
having the counties added to the addresses in 
the ministerial l?st?whrieh d.fference was adopt- 
ed in the c nsolidation or the two Almanacs 
which took place in the y^ar 1875. 

In the year 1874, the Companion office was 
purchased by Eld James Qmnter and consoli- 
dated with the Gospel Visitor and published 
under the title of the Christian Family Com- 
panion and Gospel Visitor. 

la 1&75 the Young Disciple a juvenile 
monthly, in weekly pans, was first published 
at Huntingdon, Pa M by the Brumbaugh Bros., 
and at the clo*e of the same year the name 
Christian Family Companion and Gotpel Vis- 
itor was cnanged to the Primitive Christian. 

In the latter part of the year 1876, the Primi- 
tive Christian and Pilgrim were consolidated 
in the firm name ot Quinter & Brumbaugh 
Bros. This consolidation embraced all the 
papers, almanacs, hymn books, &c, of the two 
parties, so that toe reader will see that in all 
chese publications, there is a most remarkable 
line of lineage. H. B. B. 

HISTORY OF SOLOMON'S CREEK CHURCH, 
ELKHART CO., IKD. 



BY J. H WAKSTLER. 



In the year of our Lord 1856, Solomon's 
Creek Cnurch was organized, with Frederick 
P. Loehr and Martin Weybright as ministers, 
and Jacob Arnold, John Weybright, Joel Bush 
and Levi Wyland deacons lu the year 1858 
Daniel Shively was chosen to the ministry, 
and in the year 1862 F. P. Lcehr was ordained 
elder. 

After the ohurch wa« organized the meetings

ren built one of the largest meeting-houses in 
Northern Indiana. This was at a time when 
volunteers for the civil war were exhausted 
and drafts became necessary, consequently, 
commutation money in connection with the ex- 
pense of building a house of worship taxed 
the brethren very heavily, and was a source 
of some annoyance, but they met and paid off 
the debt and now the church has no obliga- 
tions which she is unable to fill. Just about 
the time the house was completed, that is, in 
the year 1864, Martin Weybright was called 
to reap the reward of his labors upon earth, 
having never been permitted to worship in the 
new meeting-house; and early in the year 
1865, F. P. Loehr moved to Michigan, leaving 
Daniel Shively alone in the ministry until the 
month of June 1866, when George W. Cripe 
was chosen minister. In the latter part of 
the same year Peter Hammon moved into the 
church and remained about a year when ho 
moved away. In 1867 Joseph Hardman and 
George Domer moved in, and in 1868 Lewis 
Muntz was chosen to the ministry. The same 
year George W. Cripe moved into another 
district. In 1869 Jesse Calvert was received 
by letter of recommendation, and in 1871 Jo- 
seph Hardman moved away, and Joseph Hart- 
sough was received by letter of recommenda- 
tion. In 1872 Abraham L. Neff was chosen 
to the ministry, and in 1873 George Domer 
moved away, and Davis Younee moved into 
the district. In 1^75 Jesse Calvert, and in 
1876 Joseph Hartsough moved away, so that 



at present, 1877, the ministers are Daniel 
Shively, Lewis Muntz, A. L. NefY and Davis 
Younee. 

To the deacons already named there were 
added by choice in 1856 Daniel Shively and 
soon after David Coy. In 1858, as before 
stated, Daniel Shively was chosen to the min- 
istry, and in 1860 Josiah Rensberger and Ash- 
ley Furgeson were chosen deacons. In 1861 
Levi Wyland moved away and Eli Myers was 
chosen, and in 1863 he departed this life, and 
in 1864, Josiah Rensberger and Ashley Furge- 
son moved away, and the Fame year Georgo 
W. Crip3, Elias Cline and George Smith were 
chosen. In 1865 George Smith moved away 
and Christian Harshman was received by let- 
ter of recommendation. In 1866 George W. 
Cripe was chosen minister, and Daniel Forney 
moved into the district, and in 1867 John Ar- 
nold and Cyrus Lentz were chosen. In 1869 
Jacob Arnold departed this life, and the same 
year Joseph Lantzenheiser and John Robinscn 
moved into the district, and in 1870 Eli Harter 
also moved in. In 18T2 Christian Harshman 
was disabled by a stroke of paralysis, and the 
same year Cyrus Lentz moved away. In 1873 
Joel Rush died, and Joseph Lantzenheiser and 
Eli Harter moved away, and in 1874 Michael 
Treesh and J. H. Warstler were chosen, which 
was the last choice held for church servants, 
either ministers or deacons. In 1876 Cyrus 
Lentz was received back by letter of recom- 
mendation, making at present ten deacona, as 
follows: John Weybright, Daniel Forney, 
Christian Harshman (disabled), John Arnold, 
David Coy, Elias Cline, John Robinson, Cyrus 
Lentz, Michael Treesh, and J. H. Warstler. 

By recapitulation we find that in all, twelve 
ministers and twenty-one deacons served ir> 
the church since its organization, a total of 
thirty-three. Of these it will be seen that 
when the church was organized there were 
two ministers, four were chosen and six re- 
ceived by letter of recommendation. Of dea- 
cons four when organized, twelve chosen and 
five by letter of recommendation. Out of 
this number two ministers have died, namely, 
Martin Weybright and Joseph Hardman, the 
latter died about the year 1875 in another arm 
of the church, and three deacons, Eli Myers, 
Jacob Arnold and Joel Rush, five in all, leav- 
ing twenty -eight as so many monuments of 
God's mercy.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1878. 



IN MEMOEIAM— THE DEATH OF BEOTH- 
ER MILLS CALVEET. 

(Notr. It was our intention when: we sent the first notice of 
the brother's aeath, to give at an early day, a more complee 
account of his life and labors, but we hare found that some im- 
portant dates were n*>t so readily obtained as we at the time 
supposed tliey would be, hence the delay. We think our state- 
ments quite correct in each particular save in that of his elec- 
tion to the ministry, but we think the date given, is very near- 
ly the correct time.) ***** Through respeet to the 
•lder members and for the encouragement of those who are 
younger, of this intelligent and respected family, and for the 
•omtorfc of all who try to live godly in this present world, we 
give a short account of those of this family who have had di- 
rect connection with the church or the Brethren. 

Francis Caivert of Bedford Co., Ya., mar- 
ried a Baptist lady named DeWitt, about 1792. 
Tbeir sons were .Robert, Mills, and John. Rob- 
ert Calvert, was born in Bedford Co., Va., 
Sept. 9th, 1194. Of his youth we know little, 
but ieel safe to say, that the man whose life 
was so fully devoted to the cause of religion 
and morality, must have lived an exemplary 
life while in youth, and we think too that re- 
ligious impressions so marked as his were, 
must speak well for those who impart them. 

He was married Feb. 2Tth, 1816 to Sarah 
Stretch, who was born Aug. 15th, 1793, and 
who was then, at marriage, a member of the 
Brethren church. Here it seems that the 
holy influence which is now felt in so many 
homes and hearts began in this family, to exert 
its quickening power. 

In the Spring of 1817, they left Bedford 
county, and having then one child and with- 
out ready means to travel, the mother and 
child on horseback, and the father on foot, 
came 160 miles to the Kanawha Salt works. 
At this place they stayed one season, he work- 
ing at the cooper trade. In the Fall of 1817 
they came on a flat boat down to Manchester, 
Ohio, from whence they came on a wagon to 
a farm near New Lexington, Highland county. 
Here they made a settlement and on Nov. 
8th, 1818, Mills Calvert, the subject of this 
notice was born. 

To these parents were born eleven children, 
nine of whom grew to man and womanhood; 
two others a son and daughter dying under 
two years of age. The names of them and 
the order of their birth were as follows : John, 
Mills, Ira, Francis, William, Joseph, Moses, 
Joel, Jes3e, Susanna and Elizabeth Of these 
the 6th son and elder daughter died in child- 
hood. Of the remainder, all are living save 
the two favorites of the family and also with 
each other, Ira dying in 1871, and Mills in 
1877, with a space oi six years, six days, and 



six hours in the time of their departure. * * 

* * * The father, about 1820 we think, united 
with the Methodist people, but in a Rhort tin*© 
joined with the Brethren, and if we are n&t 
mistaken, was baptized by EHjah Schofield m 
1821 or 1822, and was in a Hhort time put to 
the ministry. He was in some years, advanc- 
ed to the eldership in which position he re- 
mained till his death. The f'imily moved into 
the Brush Creek church, Adams county, m 
the Spring of 1839, and it was in this, and 
High'and, and Kos3 counties, that he princi- 
pally labored, with the approval both of Gocl 
and man. 

We remember of having Been him only twice,, 
and that in our childhood, but we wl\ remem- 
ber hearing people say at the time of h'm 
death, "That if there were any good people in 

* he world, ."Robert Calvert was one of them/* 
He at one time began to write a work ou 
Baptism and went to Cincinnati to see Mr. 
Rice and question him as to t he statement of 
Mr. A. Campbell, in favor o\ trine immersion. 
Mr. Rice assured him thai the report as giveaa 
in the first edition of th delate was correct 
on that point, and said further that he would 
so state it on oath if it «yas desired. Mr» 
Kice also said to him, 'My old friend, yon 
people advocate baptism by trine immersion, 
and you can establish i&, bur, then I take a dif- 
ferent view of it/' His writings bav« never 
been published. He died of kidney disease,. 
Dec. 19. h, 1851. aged 57 years, 3 months and 
10 days. His funeral sermon was preached 
during the Summer of 1852 by sister Sarah 
Major. * * * The mother lived on to hold 
quite an influence in the church ar*d neighbor- 
hood till her death Aug 2nd, 1870. Her fu- 
neral was attended bv many friends and the* 
address was» spoken from Numbers 23 : 10, by 
Bro. J. H. Garman and the writer. * * * 
Of the children of these pi u* parents six sons 
and the daughter joined the Brethren, four of 
whom were elected to tb« ministry and two> 
to the office of deacon Of the two remain- 
ing one is a Methodist and the other is not to* 
our knowledge a member of any church, bufe 
his letters to his parents before their death 
show that he felt great, interest in the cause, 
loved so well by father and mother. We yek 
hope and trust that their labors and prayers 
in bis behalf, may not be without effect. 

Having now given those facts in regard to

BRETHREN'S AHSANACL 



[1878. 



the parents and family in genera:, we return 
to the one whose name this bears. 

Mills Calvert was born in Highland county, 
Ohio, Nov. 8th, 1818, and near to what is now 
the town of Now Lexington. The cha'nces 
then for obtaining an education were far be- 
low those at present, but being in possession 
of a good mind, which he labored to improve, 
we must all admit that he was a man of ex- 
tensive information, hi* gift of language 
was good and his power to retain what he 
read and heard, and* that too just as it was 
stated to him, was indeed remarkable. We 
have heard him say that the texts of Scrip- 
ture so often used by him both in preaching 
and in conversation (and they were many and 
often extensive) he had learned from his fath- 
er's preaching. 

He remarked to us at one time*: '-If I, know- 
ing what I now do, could live my life over 
again, there is one change I would m&k >. I 
was once offered a good:; chance to attend 
school, when a young man, and did not take 
it. I ought to have taken it." * * He 
was married to Susanna' Garman Oct. 8th, 
1843, was baptized in 1849, and his wife also. 
And on the 17th day of August 1850 he aud 
Bro. John Garman were called to the minis- 
try. On the same day Bro. Matthew Backer 
and John Calvert were called to the deacon 
office. In his calling we think all will admit 
that he labored faithfully, although not over 
an extensive territory. ;His labors were main- 
ly in Adams, Highland and Ross counties with 
an occasional visit to others, and one visit to 
Montgomery and .Miami counties of same 
state. But a consistent life and a steady con- 
stant effort have their effect, upon all classes. 
It was so in this ease, and we think his life 
will be admitted by all who knew him to have 
been a Christian one. * * * That the reader 
may know something of the work done by 
him, we will give a few items. 

It is thought that he baptized about two 
hundred members into the church. He mar- 
ried two hundred and four couples and preach- 
ed the funerals of more thau two hundred 
persons, besides attending the burials of a great 
many more. He was in this respect like unto 
his Master, "a man of sorrow and one ac- 
quainted with grief" 

^Althoujh never advanced to the position of 
Elder by the church, we think that he filled I 



many if not all the specifications laid down 
by the apostle, and the one especially of hav- 
ing "a good report of them that are without." 

As a preacher on general topics of the Scrip- 
ture, he was considered able, but upon some 
special subjects such as the power of God tc» 
save, the saving qualities of religion, the 
great subject of the resurrection from the. 
dead, and tho doctrine held by our Brethren,, 
we think ho had few equals. 

By his marriage were three sons all now m 
manhood and all promising members of the 
church. One the treasurer, one the clerk, and 
one (the youngest) a minister in the church 
that their grandfather and father had laid 
down their lives for. We trust it will always 
be their aim, to push the good work on. * * 

In the Fall of 1875, Bro. Mills' health began 
to fail, and by January he thought his case 
hopeless. He said to us, "Those three months 
have been the happiest part of my life." His 
many friends urged that he apply to the phy- 
sician's skill, and he did so, to more than one 
of them. Dr. Charles Leighton of Highland 
county, a very worthy gentleman, was called 
in May 1876. Fie asked brother Mills to givo 
him a short history of his life and labors. He 
did so, and when done, Mr. Leighton said : 
Mr. Calvert you have done enough for other 
people. You have done fifty years work in 
twenty-^ve years time, and may jurt as well 
give up. But still we will do all that can be 
done for you." Their hopes were soon blast- 
ed however, and he told us frequently that he 
had no hope whatever of his recovery, that 
there was cn'y one object he wished to live 
for and that was the cause of religion. He- 
said, "The chances are so good now, and our 
people are coming into notice everywhere, 
and the missionary spirit is spreading so fast, 
that I would like to live on, but I see I must 
soon leave it for our young men to do." He 
was visited by many persons especially by the 
older and religious people, and enjoyed their 
presence and conversation fully as well as ono 
could in his condition. Mr. John T. Wilson 
cxmember of Congress, came to see him and 
when told by brother Calvert, "I am ready to 
die any day," he said, "that is the best things 
I have heard yet." To brother Garman ho 
said, ' I am ;1ike the Psalmist, I behold the 
Lord always before my face." * * * His 
disease was, Bright's Disease of kidneys, and

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC, 



[1878- 



made its final change on Saturday June 9th. 
He then lingered on till on Tuesday night 
Jane 12*h, when with his mind perfectly clear 
and his faith firmly fixed en the Son ot God, 
he quietly passed away. The remains were 
followed to their last resting place, on the 
13th by many friends, who. all seemed to show 
that they felt that another servant of God 
hid been called away. He had selected the 
hymns to be sung at his burial and funeral and 
had told his family of the two places at the 
limit ot his walk where he bad kneeled to pray. 
The funeral sermon was ably delivered by our 
brother A. J. Htxon, July 15th, in the Pleasant 
Grove church, from Job 14 : 10. It seemed 
to be most suitable here as it was the great 
subject of Bro. Mills' life and we think should 
be of the entire race. And now we close and 
wirih the good examples we have here describ- 
ed may not be forgotten. Landon West. 



BI03RAPHY OF ELDER HENRY KURTZ. 

BY S. Z. S. 

Elder Henry Kurtz was born in Bunnigheim, 
Germany, July 22nd, 1796. His father was 
engaged in teaching and young Henry inclin- 
ing toward the same profession, received a 
fair education, including some knowledge of 
the dead languages. la 1817 he emigrated to 
America and engaged in the profession of 
teaching for a while. In the meantime he 
prepared himself for the ministry and was re- 
ceived into the Synod of the Lutheran church. 
June 10th t 1819, entered upon hig charge, 
Aug. 8tb, 1819 in Northamption county, Pa., 
where he became acquainted with Anna Cath- 
arine Loehr to whom he was married in 1820. 
In 1823 be left this charge and removed to 
Pittsburg, Pa , where he resided until 1826 
when he settled in Columbiana county, Ohio, 
and in the Spring following in Stark county, 
of the same State. 

While in Pittsburg he became troubled in 
mind concerning the validity of some of the 
church ordinances and especially that of in- 
fant baptism, but still continued preaching for 
his people until he felt himself compelled pub 
licly to avow his sentiments and disclose his 
convictions. What hastened this step was the 
fact that he was called by the parents of a 
family and members of his church to baptize 
their children. In company with an elder he 
repaired to the home ot this family and found 



some of the children old enough to be instruct- 
ed. This he at once undertook to do, but 
while he was engaged with one, the others 
would stroll away and he found his task a dif- 
ficult one as the children could not be kept to- 
gether, so that the elder remarked. u Es that 
bald noth dasz man den hund hat fur sie beiho- 
en " (It is almost necessary to have a dog to 
bring them together ) Finally he made known 
his convictions to the churoh ; and, as might 
be expected, it created no small stir. One 
council after another was held, in which a dif- 
ference of opinion prevailed as to whether he 
should be excommunicated or not, but finally* 
the decision was rendered against him. Being 
thrown out of Employment he met with some 
difficulty to support his family. 

Before moving to Stark county he had heard 
of Brethren living there and perhaps had vis- 
ited them once, and soon after locating in this 
county he united with the Brethren and was 
baptized April 6th, 1828, and placed into the 
ministry in 1830 ; and, as a means to support 
his family he resorted to printing and publish- 
ing. In December 1838 he returned to Europe 
where he had the pleasure of seeing his pa- 
rents and one sister once more. One object 
of his visit was also to become acquainted 
with the various religious denominations and 
to preach the Word where there was an open 
door. During his journey he visited Switzer- 
land and on the 14th and 15th of April 1839 
he baptized nine persons, several of whom af- 
terwards emigrated to America. (We would 
suggest to our Brethren in America to inquire 
into the result of this little missionary work.) 
Returning to this country in July 1839 he re- 
mained in Stark county until 1842 when he 
was called to settle in the Mill Creek church 
in Mahoning county, (now Mahoning church) 
in which he was orlained an elder in 1844 and 
had the care ot this congregation for more 
than thirty years. In 1851 he commenced the 
publication of the Gospel Visitor which he 
continued until a few years before his death, 
which took place January 12th, 1874. 

Elder Kurtz was a prominent member of the 
church ot the Brethren and labored zealously 
for unity of form and practice among its mem- 
bers. In the general council of the brother- 
hood he ever held a prominent position as a 
member of the Standing Committee and often; 
as Clerk of the meeting.

BRETHREN'S " ALMANAC 



[1878 



v HISTORY OF THE NAPERVILLE CHURCH, 
DUPAGE COUNTY, ILLINOIS. 



The first brother that located in Dupage 
county, 111., was Jacob Netzly probably in 
1850. He was a lay member at that time but 
afterwards was made deacon. They had no 
meeting for two years; during this time they 
heard of brethren west of them in Lee, Ogle, 
and Stephenson counties. In 1852 Samuel 
Garber, Daniel Fry, and Joseph Emmort re- 
sponded to their call, came over and preached 
for them; this was the first meeting held by 
the Brethren in this county. Shortly after- 
wards Levi Hartranft and wife were baptized, 
being the first in the county. Afterwards the 
brethren visited them every eight weeks. In 
1855 the church was organized by elders Sam- 
uel Leabman, Daniel Fry, and Joseph Eramert. 
After that they were five years without a 
shepherd when elder Samuel Lehman came to 
labor in their behalf. The first minister elect- 
ed was Christain Martin, the first deacon Ja- 
cob Netzley. The church now numbers about 
sixty-five or seventy, out of that number 
there are four ministers and four deacons. 
Minister's Names: C. Martin elder, Jacob 
Solenberger, John Holinger, George Mo very. 
Deacons: Henry Martin, D. C. Yroman, Si- 
mon Youndt, Aaron Zulius.

THE ORGANIZATION OF THE PANTHER 

CREEK CHURCH, WOODFORD COUNTY, 

ILLINOIS. 



The first brethren that ever visited this 
county to preach were Daniel Martin, Jacob 
Negley, and D. Zuck of Fulton county. 111. 
All formerly from Pa. Brother Daniel Martin 
preached the first sermon, June 27th, 1852. 
And on that day eight of us came to meeting 
with the purpose of uniting with the church. 
This was the first meeting that was ever 
held by the brethren in the county known to 
us. There were four men and their wives, and 
seven out of the eight still live. There were 
six members hero that had moved from .Roan- 
oke county. Va., at the time of the first meet- 
ing. The brethren came back again the fol- 
lowing October, when four more were baptiz- 
ed. They then organized a church on the 



23d of October, 1852. Two brethren were 
elected to the ministry, George W. and James 
R. Gish. Since that time we have had regular 
meetings, but not without our ups and downs. 
After dividing twice we yet have over one hun- 
dred members, six ministers and four deacons. 
We are still trying to do as well as wo can in 
the Master's cause, endeavoring to keep close 
to the gospel and ancient land-marks. 

James R. Gish.

A PAGAN LEGEND OF CHRIST. 



Publius Lentulus, assumed by some to have 
been pro-consul to Juda prior to Herod, is re- 
ported to have seen the Savior and to have 
written the following letter to the Koman Sen- 
ate : "At this time appeared a man who is still 
living, and endowed with power." His name 
is Jesus Christ. His disciples call him the 
Son of God ; others regard him as a powerful 
prophet. He raises the dead to life, and heals 
the sick of every description of infirmity. 
This man is of lofty stature and well propor- 
tioned, his countenance severe, and virtuous, 
so that he inspires beholders with feeling both 
of fear and love. The hair of hi3 head is of 
the color of wine, and from the top of the head 
to the ear, straight and without radiance, but 
it descends from the ears to the shoulders in 
shining curls. From the shoulders the hair 
flows down the back, divided into two por- 
tions, after the manner of the Nazarenes ; his 
forehead is clear and without wrinkle ; his 
face free from blemish, and slightly tinged 
with red ; his physiognomy noble and gra- 
cious. The nose and mouth are faultless. His 
beard is abundant — the same color of the hair 
and forked. His eyes are blue and very brill- 
iant. In reproving or censuring, he is awe 
inspiring; in exhorting and teaching his 
speech is gentle and caressing. — His counte- 
nance is marvelous in seriousness and grace. 
He has never been seen to laugh, but many 
have seen him weep. He is slender in person, 
his hands are straight and long ; and his arras 
are beautiful. Grave and solemn in his dis- 
course, his language is simple and quiet. In 
appearance, he is the most beautiiul of the 
children of men.'*

[1878.. 



THE CURIOSITIES OF THE JORDAN- 



The Jordan is remarkable for many of its 
natural features besides the many incidents 
connected with it in Biblical history. The 
trend of the Jordan Valley is north and S mth, 
extending from Anti-Lebanon to the Gulf of 
Akaba. 

The stream wending down from Anti L?b 
anon entering the S-*a of Galilee, together 
with this eea, arid the stream flowing from this 
Sea to the Bead Sea are considered as the 
Jordan Eiver. Hence, the Sea of Galilee is 
but an expansion of the Jordan. Most of oar 
Savior's public life was spent in the environs 
of the Sia of Galilee. This region was then 
the most denselj- peopled in all Palestine Not 
less than nine cities stood on the shores of the 
lake, as it is commonly called. The lake is of 
an oval shape, about thirteen miles lor^r and 
six broad. Its depression is about 650 feet be 
low the level of the Sea. The scenery is bleak 
and monotonous. The water of the lake is 
sweet, cool, and transparent, and abounds in 
fish now as in ancient times 

Leaving the lake we travel down the Jor- 
dan a distance of 200 mile3, including its wind- 
ings, the space of latitude is not more than 
about sixty miles, through scenery noted for 
monotony and tameness rather than bold out- 
line. The waters are rushing down one con- 
tinuous inclined plane, only broken by a series 
of rapids or precipitous falls. Lieut. Lynch 
says he passed down twenty seven falls. The 
greatest width is at its mouth where it empties 
into the Dead Sea, being about 180 yards 
wide. Here it is only three feet deep. There 
were several fords which were of great ser 
vice for crossing the Jordan. It is supposed 
that John the Baptist baptized at some ot these 
fords, and thought probably that our Lord was 
baptized in the upper of the two principal 
fords. (Smith's Bible Dictionary ) Not a sin- 
gle city ever crowned the banks of the Jordan. 
The descent from the Sea of Galilee to the 
Dead Sea is about 666 feet. Giving the Dead 
Sea a depression of 1316 feet below the level 
of the Mediterranean Sea at Jaffa. These fig 
ures vary slightly with different authors and 
explorers. 

The Dead Sea is about forty miles long, its 
greatest width about nine miles, and its great- 
est depth about 1300 feet. The bottom of the 



southern extremity is very shallow and level, 
some think this portion covers the site of 
Sodom and Gomorrah, others think t'.sese cit- 
ies were where the northern p-irt of the sea 
now is as some ancient mounds can there yet 
be seen. The sea has no visible outlet, but the 
process of evaporation carries off the element 
of the Jordan as fast as it is poured in. The 
water is remarkable for its ^reut weight which 
is duo to the very large quantity of mineral 
salts which it holds in solution. Its specific 
gravity is nearly H (1.225), that is, a gaUon 
of it weighs 12£ lbs while dis Hied water 
weighs 10 lbs. common sea wa'er 10] lb3 It 
has been long sopponed th:it no life whatever 
existed in the lake bnt recent facts show that 
some inferior organizations < an and do find a 
home in these salt and acrid waters. 

The great deprescion of this valley makes 
the climate almost tropica 1 . Nearly the whole 
course of the Jordan is below the level of the 
sea, the only known instance of the kicd. if 
ncacal were cut from the Mediterranean Sea 
to the Jordan all thnse waters would b; swal- 
lowed up by a Urge b>dv of water, of wiiich 
the deepest point would be over 2600 feet. 

What a b, at fa I illustration of the Church 
of God the Jordan presents to us The entire 
slope of Anti Lebanon is alive with bursting 
fountains an<l parent springs which are em- 
blematic of the many parent churches which 
are springing up and are scattered all over 
our country. After these streams unite they 
are tossed down these rugged cliff* emblemat- 
ic of the trials and temptations of the church. 
Finally they are emptied into one body em- 
blematic of tee Church triumphant.

THE CHURCH AT SPRING RUN, PA. 

This church ia part of the old church which 
about fifty years ago was mostly known by the 
name of Kinhacoquilas, but latterly by the 
name of Lewistown, until in 185" it was divid- 
ed and the western portion called Spring Run; 
the eastern portion is known by the name of 
Dry Valley. 

The Lewistown congregation was presided 
over for many years by Joseph JRothrock, who 
resided near Lewistown, and later by his son, 
Abraham, who subsequently emigrated to Kan-

sas, and lately died there. And about 1851 
Joseph R Hanawalfc was ordained to the bish- 
opriek of the church until it was divided, and 
over both churches for several years until Ja- 
cob Mohler was ordained to the bishop's office. 
The first minister that lived in the territory of 
the Spring Run church was Jacob Kinsel who 
died near MoVeytown over iorty years a^o. 
About the same time or before this John Han- 
awalt, uncle of Joseph R , resided near New- 
ton Hamilton, but his residence whs at that* 
time in Aughwick church, he died about fifty 
years ago. 

The nex- resident minister in the territory 
of Spring Run, was Joseph R. Hanawalt, who 
died in February 1877. The ministerial board 
at present are Peter S Myers, George Hana- 
walt, Abram Myers, Samuel Musser, Geo. H. 
Swigart, John S Hanawalt, and Wm. J. Swi- 
gart. There is a branch of this congregation 
called Stone Valley, in charge of Archy Van- 
Dyke, in connection with the members at 
Spring Run. The meeting-house where the 
lovefeasts are held is at Spring Run, about 
two miles from MoVeytown station, P. R R., 
was built in 1850, though lovefeasts are annu- 
ally held in the Stone Valley branch. The 
whole number of members at present is near 
three hundred and fifty. In 1858 the number 
was about one hundred and twenty. The in- 
crease by baptism has been about the rate of 
thirty or mor? per annum, when consideration 
is made for decease and emigration. The in- 
crease seems regular and substantial. The 
young peoplo are nearly all members of the 
church, from ten years upward, and very 
many of them quite intelligent and talented. 
The ministers are generally gifted and m co- 
operation are a unit and have their labors re- 
duced to a perfect system, and have regular 
preaching at over twenty different points. 

This with the blessing of God is the success 
of the church. Financially the church is com- 
paratively limited.

THE LAST OF THE .SAMARITANS. 



In that same valley of Palestine where 
Abraham and his grandson Jacob built their 
altars to Jehovah, and where some sixteen 
centuries later the Savior talked with the wo- 
men of Samaria by ' Jacob's Well," the last 



remnant of the sect of Samaritans, numbering 
only about forty families, is now rapidly dwin- 
dling away. A traveler, who has recently 
resided three months among these unmixed 
descendants of the best blood of Ancient Is- 
rael, assures us that as regards their dress, 
manners, social customs, religious rites and 
other tribal peculiarities, they are the fac sim- 
ile of their ancesters of thousands of years 
ago. They have never intermarried with any 
other race, and claim to be the true "sons of 
Joseph," whose tomb is in their valley. It is 
said that to observe their domestic life is to 
live in a Biblical atmosphere and to return to 
the days of the patriarchs. The law is read 
to them from Gerizim, as it was read to their 
forefathers from the same sacred mountain as 
early as the days of Joshua; and along the 
base of Mount Hbal camels wind thvir way, 
carrying on the traffic between Jerusalem and 
Galilee as it was carried on in the era of the 
Evangelists. From 1806 until 1846 the Sam- 
aritans were prevented by the Mahometans 
from celebrating the Passover on Mount Geri- 
zim ; but twonfcy years ago, through Christian 
intercession, the privilege was restored to 
them. Their days are numbered, but the his- 
tory and traditions will cling to the ''Valley 
of Shechem" as long as time lasts. The Greek 
Church has purchased the Well of Jacob and. 
filled its mouth with stones, preparatory to 
erecting a temple over it. It would have been 
in better taste to leave it as it was whan tLc 
patriarch watered his flocks there, and as it 
remained when the Holy Founder of the new 
dispensation drank of its "sweet water." Tho 
few surviving Samaritans are said to bo worthy 
of their lineage and of the ancient fame of 
their sect — upright, benevolent and remarka- 
ble for their physical beauty and their lofty 
bearing. Their surroundings are so solemn, 
that they could scarcely be otherwise than a 
poetic people. Tabernacled under the shadow 
of Mount Moriah, on the site of the "City of 
Refuge," and with tue'jrock of the Holy Place, 
the stones set up by Joshua, anil the spot on 
which Abraham prepared his son Isaac for the 
sacrifice, close at hand, we may well suppose 
that these noblest specimens of the Hebrew 
race pass their lives in a sort of religion* ec- 
stasy, in which the comparative degradation 
of their present condition is forgotten in the 
contemplation of a miraculous past.

BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



[1878, 



HISTORY OF THE CHURCH AT MARSH 

CREEK PROM ITS ORGANIZATION TO THE 

PRESENT TIME. 

This church was organized about the year 
1810, by electing David Pfoutz to the m s rns<.ry 
and Jacob Sherfey to the deaconship T svelve 
souls being the probable membership 

Michael Slothour came into the church as 
minister, about 1813, and labored in this ca 
pacity till 1834, when he was called from labor 
to reward. In September of 1830, David F>ker 
and John Pfoutz were called to labor m vord 
and doctrine, and Samuel Slothour and David 
Bosserman to serve as deacons. August 28 ih 
1836, David Bosserman was chosen to the 
ministry, August 27th, 1841, Daniel Banner 
was chosen speaker and Joseph Kit linger 
deacon. May 23d, 1845, Henry Bucher was 
chosen to the ministry, and December of same 
year, Michael Bushman was chosen to the 
ministry. February 8th, 1851, J D. Trostls 
was called to the ministry. October 4th, 1851, 
Joseph Sherfey and Jacob Diehi were elected 
deacons. May 29th, 1853, Joseph Sherfey was 
called to the ministry and Jeremiah Sheets elect- 
ed deacon. Nov. 12th, 18S4, fl. G. Koser and 
Samuel Hoffe were chosen deacons. In 1857 Isaac 
Bucher, a deacon, moved into the congrega- 
tion. In the Spring of 1861, David Blocher, 
another deacon, moved into the church. May 
14th, 1863, David Blocher was called to the 
ministry. November 12th, 1863, John Trestle 
and C. Lahman Pfoutz were chosen deacons 
August 12th, 1869, Ephraim Deardorff was 
chosen deacon. November 10th, 1870, Isaac 
Pfoutz was chosen deacon. September 21st, 
1872, C. Lahman Pfoutz was called to the min- 
istry. May 24th, 1873, B. F. Kittinger was 
chosen deacon. From the best possible knowl- 
edge, David Pfoutz was ordained in the Fall 
of 1821 and held that office till his death in 
1849. David Bosserman was ordained in the 
Fall of 1848, under whose charge the church 
still flourishes. This church is located in the 
county of Adams, and the State of Pennsyl- 
vania. Bounded on the east by the Upper 
Conewago church, on the west by the Antie- 
tarn and Falling Spring churches on the north 
by Lower and Upper Cumberland, south by 
the Monocacy and Pipe Creek churches. The 
present membership is 193 souls. In 1850 the 
territory was formally divided into six sub- 
districts. The boundaries of each are desig- 



nated by public roads centreing at Gettys- 
burg. Each sub- district is visited annually in 
rotation, by a deacon and sub deacon. Have 
fi~e ministers ani ei^ht deacons, have five 
places for preaching regularly, yet only two 
meeting houses, the rir»t was built 1830 on a 
lot of ground donated by elder David Pfoutz, 
the second 1852 on a site leased by the society 
of Mends A Brother. 



HISTORY OF TEE AUGHWICK CHURCH, 
EimTIMGDON CO., PA. 

The Aughwick church of the Brethren in 
Huntingdon county, Pa., was organized about 
1802. The number of members was small at 
that time, only six in al*, namely, Christian 
Long and wile, Daniel Sacrist and wife, and 
Peter Sacrist and wife. Oat of that number 
Christian L mg was chosen to the ministry, 
and Daniel Secrist to the deacooship, and as 
those coul J only labor in the German language 
there was not much progress made in number 
ior some time. There were some members 
moved in soon after the organization. Inas- 
much as there was no record kept ot church 
matters at that time we have to guess at some 
things as to time, but in a few years Jacob 
Lutz was chosen to the minigtry who also was 
German, in a few more years John Hanawalt 
was chosen to the ministry who could speak 
the English. Things seemed to move a little 
faster. I think the number was about twenty- 
five when Pdter Long was chosen to the min- 
istry in 1826. The church began to spread out 
its borders considerable. In 18*27 Andrew 
Spanogle and John King were chosen to the 
ministry. Next in turn was Michael Bolling- 
er in 1835. it now looks like a pretty strong 
team of ministers, but some began to move 
away and some died. Next in turn to the min- 
istry was Graybdi Myers and Christian Long 
Jr, in 1839. John Giock was chosen 1842 and 
John Spanogle in 1844; about this time some 
called the cnureh at Aughwick a preacher fac- 
tory. In 1847 Abraham Funck was chosen 
to the ministry, and Enoch Eby in 1850. Then 
comes George Myers on the list in 1853. 
Then James Lane was elected in 1858, and 
Peter Swane in 1861, and Christian Myers ia 
1865, and Isaac Book and John Garver were 
chosen in 1869, and Robert Waketiald in i872, 
and Sath Myers in 1874, and Wm. Spanogle

[1813. 



in 1817. It would sweli the list too long to 
name the deacons, &c. Christian Long died 
in 1849, hence was in the ministry about for 
ty-seven years. John Glock, John Spanogle, 
Abram Funck, James Lane, Eobert Wakefield, 
Seth .Myers, and William Spanogle, still re- 
main in the Aughwick church. Christian 
Long, Jacob Lutz, John Hanawalt, Andrew 
Spanogle and John King are dead. Peter 
Long lives in Perry county, Pa,, Michael Bol- 
linger in Carroll Co., III., Graybill Myers 
at Eldorado, Pa., Christian Long Jr., in Dallas 
Co , la., Enoch Eby in Jo Davis Co., 111., Ge • 
Myers in Kan , Christian Myers in Juniata Co., 
Pa., John Garver in Cumberland Co., Pa., Isaac 
Book in Juniata county, Pa. 

The church that was once called the Augh- 
wick church is now divided into three organi- 
zations, scattered over a very large mountain- 
ous territory, hard labor for the ministry. The 
writer spent considerable time of the last year 
in that part of Pa., and while there the thought 
presented itself to us that it might be of some 
interest to some of the many members that 
have lived in the Aughwick church to see a 
ittle review of the doings of the church. 
The meeting-house in Germany Valley was 
built in 1836; the one in Hill Valley in 1873.

This preparation has never been aivertised excep to ■ 
very limited extent where it is known, yet by its < •• n 
merits alone it. has gained for itself friends where

than 20 years' use, and is now sold in 
Nine States, and calls are constant- 
ly being made for it in new places. 

As will be seen by the Certificatps / appended, it is not only 
the best remedy in u«e for the cure of Hheuinatisin,

tues, it is *n invaluable remedy for Dyspep-

arising from an irrpure state of the 
blood.
